Ramzí Gallery and Fiorí Beauty Salon
Jakarta, Indonesia
This refurbished building accommodates two different functions: an art gallery on the ground floor and a beauty salon above. The existing structure and roof shape had to be maintained, so the interiors and the facade provided the only scope for innovation. The facade contains fragments of glass, arranged in a steel frame in such a way as to create changing reflections and levels of transparency throughout the day. Diffracted light is also a feature of the front of the gallery, where a clear glass platform, supported by timber louvres, distributes the reflection of the pool below.
